The Business & IP Centre’s Start-up Day is back for 2021, during Global Entrepreneurship Week, with involvement from over 30 libraries around the UK and over 50+ speakers.
Join us online for a day of free talks and practical advice sessions designed to get your business idea off to a flying start. The British Library is leading a revolution by inspiring a thriving community of new and existing business owners. It’s free to join and open to everyone. And for over a year, it has been fully available online.
Inspired by COP26, we’re bringing sustainability in business to the fore. We believe sustainable businesses play a significant role in encouraging more sustainable behavior. Through collaboration with consumers and government businesses and their owners will help accelerate action to tackle the climate crisis and make a positive impact in society. Headline talks include individual and panel discussions with Santander, Mintel and more to be announced soon.
Whether you're just starting out, or are ready to take the next step, join us online for our annual day of free business support. Pick and choose from our jam-packed schedule of inspirational talks and sessions, jump around between the different breakout rooms, find events local to you across the country, or just settle in for the full day.
With our live chat feature, you can continue to talk to fellow attendees, share advice and network. Events are being hosted across the country so this is an opportunity to meet a wider breadth of people than ever before.
You only need to register once to get access to the full day of events. You can then choose which sessions you attend.

Business headshot editing service
We may not be in person but there’s no reason to not be picture perfect. Instead of our regular headshot service, photographer Sam Lane will be on hand to help make your selfies more professional than ever with their editing skills, so that you have the perfect headshot for your LinkedIn profile. We will be sharing more information about how to use this service on the day. Don’t forget to follow #BIPCStartUpDay across social media to keep updated on what all of our speakers have to say throughout the day.
In partnership with Santander.
